3D Wreath Image

Today I decided to make yet another 3D item and it's not animal related today. LOL The girls were teasing me yesterday that I was going to have to make a trophy room for the like the hunters do, not just put them in my sons room he did not mind. today my choice of pojects is a 3 D Holly leaf wreath.Let me just say in my mind I could see it and all the pieces fit but it was a challenge to get it all together as my mind wanted it to go but finished project was the outcome. This is not a beginner file that is for sure. file is not being shared at this time til I get ann the instructions wrote out. and that will take a bit. Thank you for looking.

and the bear I did yesterday.

A Lady named Kathy put me to a challenge the otherday and I not only got the item she wanted but two more I was on a roll and then DD came in and said oh mommy I want a bear and a elk and and and I said hold your horses little girl I can only do one at a time. I knew it has been a while sine I posted but it is summer time and kids are home for a few more weeks. so here is my image share.
I am not sharing the files for these at this time.

Ok got banned From MTC for posting a link to my blog with the 3 D items

Well made a post like normal and got Banned from MTC as because those on that come to my blog can read his nasty p.m to me from the other day if they had wixhed to read all my blogs. I bought MTC just like everyone else and because he has teamed up with KNK he will not allow Black Cat people to post with out fear of being banned he has turned to be just as bad as PC when removing post or sinking them and just plain bans people for no reason what so ever. when i made a responce to a post on the MTC forum in which a lady wanted to know which machine she should get.
this is what got the nasty pm.m sent to me.

I have four machines an each has its own things about it, I use the 18 Black Cat Cougar for everything the others just on occasion I can say the customer support is awesome for the Cougars day or night and that it has not failed me on anything I have cut with it ,paper to plastic to balsa wood and much more.
heck before we could talk about what ever cutter you wanted but not now, be very careful because I am not the only one he targeted because they have ties with the Black Cat.
What I post here is mine and I have every right to make my blog postings. this post ties in with the june 3rd post here on my blog.


Todays is for a dear friend who likes to make miniture displays but wanted to make it more light wieght and asked if i could come up with some ideas so this is what i decides to do a bakery case display and what is a bakery with out the counter and cash register. Please remember these are only samples and not what she will get but my first cut of the project to see if i need to make adjustments.

Friday, June 3, 2011

Well Please dont read this if you don't like to hear things being said from someone who is upset

I made made a post of how I like what all my Cougar does and that it cuts anything from paper to plastic even balsa wood and then made sure if they wanted to email me I could give them the information to all the forums so they could be wellinformed as to questions on their Black Cat as I have done since I have offered tech support for the cougars and that will not change I have never bashed MTC nor will. I do not sell any thing and I do not take them away from MTC, I have It is a great program but have no clue as to why he would pm this I have been on that forum and helped since the beginning of the MTC forum and then things started going down hill because there is a group there who has a personal vendetta against the Black cat and some left with good reason to. I am upset that he would read private messages from one forum member to another and that it was just to offer them one on one help off the forum so it could be faster with out getting to much imput from tomany people as it can cause confusion for some. so here is what he said to me. in a pm this may get me banned from there so if it does there are links to the other forums I visit so please if you need my help email me or find me here. and

here is what it says since it showed up so small.

Andy 4:46PM
If I hear any more about you guys sitting in the forum bleachers picking off my customers trying to get them to move forums or buy products in PMs, you all will be banned without notice. Consider this a final warning.

You have your own forums... there is no reason for you to be here. Your intentions for being here have soured over the past weeks and I won't put up with spammers any longer.

This is my reply back as I thought I had to address his rudeness.

I am not a spammer. I have been here thru all the times and even strongly supported the forum and you while you went thru all the crap PC has done to you , I have gave an opinion like I have all along I have mentioned another forum to people yes but from emails i have seen is you have told Cougar owner to go to the Black cat forum for help also.There is no reason that people can not belong to more than one forum ,lord knows I belong to at least 5 forums. it appears that I can not tell them about the other forum but everyone I help has already bought the MTC program and the cutters of their choice. I do not sell any products I would like to know what I did that made you make such a nasty pm to me

I am not a spammer and I have paid for my MTC just like everyone else has so I do have a right to be there too.
Does he not understand that running people off his forum is not good for his business.

barn and Tractor Item of choice today

I thought I would go with the old barn and tractor. I grew up on a farm and as we travel the trips back and forth to the hospital for my son, my eyes are always drawn to the barns we pass. One day my dream home is to have a log home with a barn shaped roof, just love the thought. THESE FILE LINKS NOW EXPIRED

after the time is up here on my blog for the files I will not offer them as I will be working on written tutorials for them and will be adding a few things to many of the files and then be offering them for sale and will post when and where that will be in a short time.
